From Malacca To Putrajaya
Congratulation to ALL mankind, in particular the Muslims, on this special day MAULIDUR RASUL, the birthday of Muhammad, the final Messenger of Allah, the God Almighty. Muhammad was sent by ALLAH, the God Almighty, as a blessing to all mankind.
In Malaysia, it has been a tradition, to commemorate the BIRTHDAY of the GREATEST among the Messengers of Allah, by organising processions, marches and gatherings as an EXPRESSION OF JOY AND THANKFULNESS, in rememberence of the date, which had transformed the world, from darkness to LIGHT, from the narrowness of the world to the VASTNESS of the world and the HEREAFTER, and from enslavement by fellow human-beings to the HUMAN DIGNITY, by the Grace of ALLAH, the God Almighty.
The vanue of this year’s National Level MAULIDUR RASUL celebrations is PUTRAJAYA, the Administrative Capital of Malaysia. It has been 10 years since ‘life began’ in Putrajaya. Besides being the EMBODIMENT of a nation on the verge of becoming a fully-developed country by the year 2020, Putrajaya is the MANIFESTATION of the SUCCESS STORY of Malaysia, and the INGENUITY of the Malays/Muslim leaders.
Putrajaya is a new MILESTONE in the world history of MALAY CIVILISATION, which dominated the Malay Archipelago since TIME IMMEMORABLE, PUNCTUATED by the famous Malay Kingdoms of Langkasuka, Srivijaya and Malacca. Despite the FALL of Malacca to the Portuguese, Dutch and British, the PROUD MALAY IDENTITY AND CIVILISATION remains and flourishes, as part and parcel of world history of GREAT CIVILISATIONS.
